The Kirengehsomas and Hemerocallis 'Steeple Jackie' are finished and the toad lilies and Japanese Anemones haven't started flowering. This is the moment for the Cimicifugas planted throughout the garden to shine.
I enjoy Sedum flowers the longer the season goes on as the colors darken and the heads start to stiffen and dry, making them perfect for indoor displays.
Not quite ready to join the party are these Tricyrtis whose buds are still tightly furled. It is one of my favorite plants because its foliage is so dramatic all season long. The flowers have become almost an afterthought for me.
